Winter Solstice; Find Your Sun

Standard

PC Panorama

December 21, 2013 marks the winter solstice for the northern hemisphere. Here, just outside of Chicago it’s gray. The sky…. and the dingy snow pushed aside by plow and shovel. Gray. There is a chill in the air as we wait for a cold front to decide if the sky will deliver freezing rain or snow, and just a few minutes more than 9 hours of daylight. (sunrise 7:16, sunset 4:25)

But since I’m a glass-half-full kinda gal, I’m happy to realize the days will start to get longer now too. Before you know it, it will be summer.

Let’s find the sun….

Something about the sun sparkling on the water...

Something about the sun sparkling on the water…

Sunny beans try to beak through the palms.

Sunny beams try to beak through the palms.

Glimmer on the pool

Glimmer on the pool

And then the light starts to fade

And then the light starts to fade

Shining bright until tomorrow

Shining bright until tomorrow

If all else fails; improvise.  Just find your sun… your Sol… where you can! Cheers to the winter solstice.

Cheers!

Cheers!

🌴 An Island dreamer with a passion for palm trees and Caribbean turquoise water. Few things speak to my soul like having my feet in the sand on the coast of somewhere amazing with salty wind blowing through my hair. 🌴 🌴 Sandonthebrain is my way to hold that feeling all the rest of the days when I am not on an island. My collection of sand and affinity for rum, and island flavors helps to take me back...until the next trip. 🌴
